Together4Children is a partnership between Shropshire Council, Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Telford & Wrekin Council. We are the regional adoption agency for the four councils. We also provide other services and initiatives that support children’s permanency.
The partnership is a new way of delivering our adoption services within your area. Working together means we can offer greater choice and a better support service for both children and adopters.
Your regional adoption agency
Through Together4Children, our four local authorities work in partnership to deliver a range of adoption services across the region, including:
We see support as the key to everything we do
We know that some of the most valued support for adopters and their children comes from other adopters. Through our core services and innovative partnerships, we aim to offer a range of peer support options so that everyone has the opportunity to be a part of our adopter community.
Where families need something more, we have skilled and experienced, multi-disciplinary practitioners on hand to provide specialist support. Working alongside key partners, we can support access to therapeutically trained practitioners, play therapists, social workers, clinical psychologists, and others with specific skills and qualifications.
We know that adoption is a lifelong journey and we aim to provide the right support at the right time.
Supporting you and your family is what we do!
From the first click on our website or call through to our enquiries team, we want you to feel supported on your adoption journey.
We know it can be scary and daunting making those first steps on your journey. A member of our experienced team will support and help you to decide if adoption is right for you.
As you travel forward on your adoption journey, you will hear about children from all four local authorities for whom we are seeking families. Children that need permanent, loving families and for whom adoption is the right outcome.
We hope that if you are thinking about adoption, you will want to come on the journey with Together4Children – we will support you through the planning, approval and matching stages; through to becoming a family and beyond.
